Have students share what comes to mind when they first think of sharks. Explain that there are many different kinds of sharks and that their skeletons are made of cartilage. Have students feel their ears to feel the cartilage in their own bodies. Next, discuss how sharks eat and share that they rarely attack humans. Watch the short video and have students discuss the important role of sharks in our oceans. What would happen if there were no sharks left?
After this, show students the diagram of the different parts of a shark. They then drag each label to the correct box. Finally, students learn about different types of sharks like the angel shark and the whale shark. You can choose to have students choose a shark to research on their own.
